The Bishop McNamara High School community will go all out on Friday, October 16th to dress in pink showing our support of Breast Cancer Awareness month!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Although breast cancer in men is rare, over 2,500 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in a year. Thanks to new treatments and early detection, the five-year relative survival rate for women with breast cancer is about 90 percent.
The BMHS community is encouraged to dress totally (or mostly) in pink to show our support of this amazing cause. Students, you will be allowed to dress down this day if you are in pink.
A link for donations will be available here for those who would like to contribute to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization whose mission is to save lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.
Remember, please donate to this cause today and throughout the month of October!
